People at Marvel like their own movies, say Thor and Captain America are great
This will come as a giant shock to you, but people who are getting paychecks from Marvel seem to love the movies Marvel is releasing this summer! Both THOR and CAPTAIN AMERICA screened this week for Marvel insiders and those insiders have nothing but the nicest things to say. Let's take a look at two of the least objective movie reviews ever.
"Its funny, its exciting and theres great visual effects...Its just a helluva lot of fun to watch!" Sounds like the kind of quote you'd expect to see running in a movie commercial, right? Well Paramount and Marvel might want to think twice about using that quote in ads for CAPTAIN AMERICA as they're from Joe Johnston...director of CAPTAIN AMERICA. Yes, the director of an upcoming movie thinks his movie is awesome.
After viewing a full cut of the movie for the first time a few days ago, Johnston spoke to the LA Times and gave his review (hint: two snaps up with a twist). "There is so much entertainment value its just flat-out fun to watch," Johnston says of his own film. He adds that he was "blown away" by Chris Evans' performance in the film and says it has "great action." So there you have it folks - it must be good!
In other Marvel film news, THOR also screened this week and current "Avengers" writer and Marvel employee Brian Michael Bendis has seen the film and thinks it's fantastic. In fact he said on Twitter, "I have seen it! It is fantastic!" (See, told ya.)
I'll wait patiently until I read a review from a more impartial source but I suppose it's good to know that the Marvel people are drinking their own Kool-Aid...
